Default Nvidia driver failure on Ubuntu 7.0.4 kernel 2.6.20-16-server

I have a RIVA TNT2 video card running on a standard Intel motherboard and a Pentium IV processor and im unable to install the nvidia video driver.

Im using Ubuntu Server 7.0.4, kernel version 2.6.20-16-server and the installation fails. Heres a portion of the log file, which im also attaching to this post:

make[3]: *** [/tmp/selfgz7300/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.o
] Error 1
make[2]: *** [_module_/tmp/selfgz7300/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pkg1/usr/src
/nv] Error 2
nvidia.ko failed to build!
make[1]: *** [module] Error 1
make: *** [module] Error 2
-> Error.
ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

Any ideas? Thank you,
